Film screening: Kachkaniraqmi (I Am Still Here)

Dir. Javier Corcuera, 120 min, Quechua, Spanish and Shipibo-Conibo with Spanish subtitles.
In Quechua when two dear old friends meet after a long time the chosen greeting is “Kachkaniraqmi!” to express that, despite everything, we are still here, despite the odds. This is a journey back to the source, from the place that you come from, where you start to be. The documentary unfolds a not-so-evident multinational musical tradition in Peru; a very rich musical heritage shown through different musicians’ personal stories and their music.
